Mother

Mother don’t lie to me anymore

I’m old enough to understand

What you refuse to put

In the great poet’s hands

I know that you still lie

Among the dogs and their pride

Please give me some truth

 

Is it too much for you?

You never held me

Is this too much for you?

You never loved me

 

Can’t you see?

They all stand in the rain

Laughing at the storm

Their eyes bright with tears that never fall

You never gave me what I wanted

So I took it back

You never gave me what I needed

Can’t you see?

I’m lost to your arms anyway

 

Mother don’t command me anymore

I can tell the difference

Between a man and a beast

And the heartbreak you don’t allow me

It will never be mine

You hide behind your words

But I want these hands for something else

 

Is it too much for you?

You never held me

Is this too much for you?

You never loved me

 

Can’t you see?

They all stand in the rain

Laughing at the storm

Their eyes bright with tears that never fall

You never gave me what I wanted

So I took it back

You never gave me what I needed

Can’t you see?

I was never yours anyway

The Darcy Perspective

Thank you so much! To be honest I can't really relate to my own poetry like others do. It is all feelings I've felt in the past that have healed over time. I want to help people face their problems through these things I've seen and dealt with.
